Washington: US President Joe Biden has raised more than $71 million for his re-election campaign in the third quarter of the year, more than his rival and predecessor President Donald Trump, as well as the rest of the Republican primary.
In a statement on Sunday, the president's campaign said his political campaign with the Democratic National Committee ended the quarter with $91 million, according to the report. But he did not disclose how the funds were divided between the campaign and the party committee.
Campaign co-chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg told CNN on Sunday that the third-quarter data exceeded targets set for the July to September period.
He said, all the money that is being raised and the $91 million that is in the bank today is all focused on November of 2024. According to reports so far, Biden's latest fundraising figure is higher than that raised by Republican presidential candidates.
